They smooch on the top, and then head down for some lunch in the rotating restaurant and talk about how many kids they want. DeAnna wants three by the time she's thirty. She's twenty-six now, which means she'd better get moving. See, Jason is the Guy Who Has A Kid. And they're off to meet him now. Ty is an adorable four-year-old who gets giddy when he sees his daddy and they tackle each other. DeAnna wipes away tears because it was like something out of a movie. DeAnna presents Ty with a blue golf ball, and gets a thank-you and a fist-bump in return. Hee! I taught my daughter how to do that as soon as her motor control allowed it.
While the three of them feed the ducks, DeAnna talks about how nice it is to see Jason with his son, and that she doesn't have to wonder whether Jason would make a good father.
Ty rides in his cowprint car seat (yep -- that's the one my Molly rides in) sitting between Jason and DeAnna. Jason says bringing DeAnna home to his family is a big deal, because he only ever introduced his high school girlfriend and his ex-wife to them.
She's welcomed with open arms by the entire brood. "They went out of their way to make me feel welcome," says DeAnna, noting the Greek food the family made. Jason's sister-in-law says she's curious as to what it's like to be dating Jason and three other guys, and DeAnna talks about how weird it is. "Are you prepared to get your heart broken?" Jason's brothers decide to grill him, which unfortunately sets him to babbling about connections and whatnot. She's also asked if she can handle dating a sports fan, like it is this horrible disease that she'll have to handle.
After supper, the family sits around while Jason and DeAnna present Ty with the star that DeAnna had named for him, and he's absolutely adorable about it. Then it's time for a round of ouzo, with DeAnna completely dropping the ball when asked for a traditional Greek toast, and she gives a blandly generic thank-you to the clan for welcoming her in, and then they all say Opa! DeAnna says Jason's family is like her own big fat Greek family. In a talking head, Jason's mom says DeAnna has the attributes Jason's looking for. First up? "She's beautiful." Heh.
After the I'm-sure-they-do-this-after-every-meal game of leapfrog, Jason's dad asks her how she feels about taking a backseat to Ty, and DeAnna lies (based on everything we've seen so far) that she'd be happy being the "second part" of someone's life. Meanwhile, Jason and his mom have a pretend-the-camera's-not-there conversation about how he feels and getting his heart broken, and Jason says something about body armor. Love is a battlefield, after all.
